Hyundai Motor Company is testing the performance capabilities of IONIQ 5 N at the Nürburgring circuit for its world premiere in July.
Till Wartenberg, Vice President and Head of N Brand & Motorsport at Hyundai Motor Company, expressed the significance of the Nürburgring in refining every N model to perfection. Regarding the first high-performance, all-electric N model, the IONIQ 5 N, he stated that it must also demonstrate its capabilities at this renowned racetrack.
